Thanks Tafelspitz. My old test tank was a blue plastic barrel split lengthways, but the Boston was too long to fit. I started searching eBay for something bigger and these life raft cases came up under water/feed troughs for a tenner each, and local too! I already had a frame which once carried a Landrover engine, so with a bit of angle iron welded on .....job done. ☺️.

Some progress made with my Boston Typhoon build. I'm hoping to see her on the lake this summer. 😎🤗.

Nearly finished now. It's taken me longer than I'd hoped as the dreaded cancer is still taking its toll, but launch day is scheduled for next week!  :-)) %% .

What a beauty!  Congratulations.
I love the sound system too-  how do you get 'steam' when the whistle blows?

Thanks Birlinn.
The steam/whistle effect is just a lucky coincidence. 😉 The "Steam Master" unit is set to give puffs of steam, not linked in any way to the whistle sounds. Sounds are from Actions "Noisy Thing 2", triple expansion steam engine from the cd, plus the steam whistle.

She's a beauty indeed! Like the weathered look and she's very graceful on the water. Something to be prowd of! <takes a bow>
